[audio]Looking for You by Chip Weitzner (a.k.a. The Felicity Facility)
Chip Weitzner was a self-proclaimed hippy composer who owned an organ and recorded hypnotic electro-acoustic pieces in his Berkeley, California studio. He typically referred to his music as work from "The Felicity Facility." This tape features “Looking For You,” a song with electronic organ and some additional tape manipulation. It is somewhat similar to the sort of avant-garde electronic music being produced by Brian Eno, Todd Rundgren and others in the early 1970s.
